I wish I could join you, sounds like a fascinating session - but I am not sure about time nor funding. Will keep it in mind though - I've printed out your manuscript, it's top on my list of things to do.
All the best

Emne: "The Decorated School in Europe'
I am soliciting paper proposals for a panel tentatively titled "The Decorated School in Europe' to be presented at the 2012 European Educational Research Conference in Cadiz, Spain. September 18-21. This will contribute to sessions coordinated by Network 17 of the ECER 'Histories of Education. See http://www.eera.de/networks/
My own paper will be based on progress so far in defining and identifying examples of 'decoration' in school buildings in the UK. This is ongoing work supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). See www.thedecoratedschool.blogspot.com
Ideally, papers from different regions of Europe will present data that is already evident about murals, sculptures, glass, textiles, and other media which resulted from artists and designers collaborating with teachers and / or architects in the design of school buildings. The result will strengthen the possibilities of gaining further research funding in an international context.
Please contact me directly with ideas and suggestions.
The proposals need to be submitted by February 1st 2012.
